His Early Life

Stevland Hardaway Morris was born on May 13, 1950, in Saginaw, Michigan. Born as a premature baby, Stevie had to spend some days in the incubator. Unfortunately, excess oxygen in the incubator led to complications that left him permanently blind. With no sight, Stevie developed an increased sensitivity towards the sound which fueled his interest in music. At an early age, he began playing the piano, harmonica, and drums. Stevie quickly became a child prodigy showcasing his talents in his Detroit church, on the streets, and at parties.

At the age of 11, Stevie Wonder grabbed the attention of Motown CEO Berry Gordy who signed him to his first-ever record deal. According to the contract, Wonder’s royalties were to be held in a trust until he turned 21. Stevie worked with Motown producer Clarance Paul who named him “Little Stevie Wonder,” birthing his lifelong stage name. With that contract, Wonder received a weekly stipend of $2.5 from Motown.

Analysis of His Net Worth: How Much Is He Really Worth?

Wonder’s music career may seem blissful from afar but it wasn’t without hiccups. His success was not immediate. Wonder had to persevere through the mild success of his first, two albums. His first major hit came at the age of 13 with the single “Fingertips” which reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, making Wonder the youngest artist in history to top the charts.

However, it was as though Stevie would become one of those one-hit wonders when he struggled to match his initial success. Even Motown considered releasing him from the contract. However, they decided to take a chance on him. At this point, Stevie honed his singing, songwriting, and piano skills.

After dropping Little from his name, Stevie regained glory with hits like “Uptight (Everything’s Alright)” and “Blowin’ in the Wind.” With minor bumps in the road, Wonder ended the 1960s with a strong foot and ultimately became a multi-millionaire.

Stevie Wonder Has Sold Over 100 Million Records Across the Globe

Wonder’s career witnessed continuous success, taking the world by storm from the early 70s. After his initial contract expired in 1971, Wonder worked independently before resigning to Motown on an unprecedented 120-page contract that gave him total control of his works and greatly increased his royalty rate. 1n 1971, Wonder earned $21 million from the deal.

Throughout the 70s, Wonder enjoyed the most consistent success of his career. His 1972 album “Talking Book” was tremendously successful. It spawned the hit songs “Superstition” and “You Are the Sunshine of My Life” which both brought him 3 Grammy Awards. Stevie toured alongside the Rolling Stones in support of the album, exposing him to a wider audience.

His next album “Innervision”s (1973) won 3 Grammy Awards including album of the year. In the midst of paradise, tragedy struck when Wonder was involved in a ghastly car accident. Like all other hurdles in his life, he overcame and returned stronger with “Fulfillingness’ First Finale” (1974) and “Songs in the Key of Life” (1976).

Both albums each garnered 3 Grammy Awards. The latter contained some of Wonder’s most evergreen hits. After going on a 3-year hiatus, Wonder made a comeback in the 80s with even more commercial success. His studio album Hotter than July (1980) became his first platinum-selling album. The album’s single “Happy Birthday” helped Wonder successfully campaign for Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday to become a national holiday.

As years passed, Wonder became less prolific. However, he continued to collaborate with a wide array of artists. His body of work includes 23 studio albums, three soundtrack albums, and four live albums. He has sold over 100 million records across the globe.
